Rebecca's Fancy Stripes

Piece of Cake!  I changed the color placement in the corners and made a three color block instead of a 2 color block.  I made the block in rows instead of four patches and this helped to keep the seam bulk down as I was better able to place the seams the right direction.  I made a ten inch block.  I have picked out some dark solid navy for the sashing to make a quilt.

I love your colour placement! I might have to try something like this. I love it!

I've been comparing your two versions and this one really sparkles. It's interesting how the background fabric makes a big difference. The first version with using the mid tone blues just didn't seem to pop the reds as much.
